A 34-year-old member asked:

Can you use neosporin ointment to treat phimosos instead of using steroids?

Depends: The most common cause of phimosis is recurrent infection/inflammation and this is usually fungal in this area. I find best results with combined anti fungal and steroid cream. In rare instances neosporin could benefit.
Created for people with ongoing healthcare needs but benefits everyone.
